Subject: Too funny but significant too
I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. I got mine 5 years after this was made and I understand what the film maker was trying to do. Empower women and help them understand that it isn't a bad thing or anything to be ashamed of. What I thought was hilarious was that she told her boyfriend. And he was obsessed about it.

Subject: Really very good.
This film screams the early 70's, 'tis true, but beyond that, it's really an excellent primer to show teens, and was a much fresher and breezier-toned film than the B&W Coronets which a generation of teens before it had to sit through. Clever, funny, enlightened... 1970's kids were lucky to be the beneficiary of this novel and shame-free video.

Maybe this could be bundled with 'The Bloody Pit of Horror'....

Subject: But it is hilarious!
The sexual repression of America began with films like this. Parents were too embarrassed to speak frankly to their children and left it to the schools and films like this.

Subject: Johnny is a pedo...
Judy looks like she is 21 or so and makes a some what convincing 15 year-old, but Johnny just looks far to old and it comes out kinda creepy...

I was subjected to this film in 9th grade back around 1999, it had more information then the video's that were new, guess that says something about conservatism in America.

Subject: So bad it's...still bad, and funny as hell
I'm certain, that at the time of it's release (does one actually "release" such a film, or "inflict"?) this film may have really helped some young men and women feel more comfortable with this subject, but without question, it certainly had to have had the opposite effect on some as well.
Partly due to the look of the film, then the just awful acting, the unattractive cast( Sorry, but the boyfriend looks like a pimply-faced Sylvester Stallone in his awkward phase- and "Linda" makes Sally Struthers look like a beauty queen!!) and let's not forget the subject matter itself.

Yes, films on this subject were no doubt needed, but here, they just take something natural and perhaps mildly distasteful, and make it bloody gross!
No pun intended.

That's exactly why this movie is so god-damned funny!!
I feel bad, because you can tell it is meant to be sincere, and I guess it is, but...(s'cuse me)...
...BLARRRF!!
Were there such a thing as a "Gay recruiting" agenda, this would HAVE to go in that arsenal.

So funny it hurts.

Subject: Ahead of its time
This liberating feminist celebration of female autonomy dared to break one of the final taboos, the mystique of menstruation (a word almost never spoken during this era).

Linda's confident self-exploration and mastery of her menses is contrasted dramatically with the ignorance of her boyfriend, humiliatingly disempowered by his lack of knowledge and explicitly subordinated to Linda's superior understanding. Male authority figures are lampooned as stuffy and out of date (a man with a white suit and enormous bow tie), or sinister but impotent (a man with a phallic hat and mustache).

In a nod to the ancient 'wise woman' tradition, the secrets of womanhood are communicated by a female avatar, a triumphant retort against the male hierarchy of the day.

Did anyone else notice him? He was The Stanton kid. You may remember him as Zack in Beverly Hills Cop.

Subject: Stupid, stupid, stupid
Any normal guy, when his girlfriend would tell about this would run and hide under his bed. Guy, do NOT want to know the details of this. Okay?

Subject: Menstruation, seventies style
A 1974 film about menstruation financed by the Creative Artists Public Service Program of the New York State Council of the Arts(CAPS), a program that ran from 1970 to 1981. Fifteen year old Judy has just gotten her first period and tries to explain it to her befuddled boyfriend Johnny. In contrast to most menstruation films, we never see Judy's mother or older sister share her experience with her. There's only a cartoon character named Francine, who mysteriously appears on TV to talk about female anatomy and to remind girls to use birth control.

The filmmakers also asked both men and women on the street in Manhattan for their feelings about menstruation and got some great responses.
